Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Care Program recently hosted a delegation from the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC).  The accreditation review included a recent, two-day virtual site visit. The evaluators were greeted virtually by the faculty, staff, students and program administrators welcoming them to Skyline College’s amazing campus.  During their virtual site visit, the evaluators conducted interviews with program and institutional administrators, faculty, graduates, students and advisory committee members. The program received glowing reviews. The College and Program was congratulated for development of a model for Community Colleges in California to award a Baccalaureate Degree and have produced a superb example for Respiratory Care Degree Advancement Program.


Thank you to everyone who made the site visit a huge success, especially

Elayne Rodriguez, Beatriz Qura Del Rio, Ray Hernandez, Dr. Carla Grandy, Nadia Tariq, Dr. Melissa Moreno and Dr. Taylor-Mendoza for their continuous attention and contributions to the program.  A special thanks to community leaders, faculty, staff students and graduates who came out to support the program.
